2021 London Concert Season

January 2021 - April 2021

Regretfully we have made the difficult decision to cancel our planned concerts at Royal Festival Hall in February and March 2021.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly regarding the refunds process.

We hope that you will continue to enjoy our autumn season of concerts broadcast on Marquee TV. We are working hard behind the scenes to deliver a programme of concerts in the spring and we look forward to seeing you in person as soon as we are able to welcome back an audience to experience the joy of live orchestral music.

Hough plays Brahms | 16 April 2021

For Stephen Hough, Brahms’s First Piano Concerto is ‘a burst of pure, utter, natural genius’. Hough plays it like no-one on earth, and this might be one of the few performances you’ll hear that has the potential to overshadow Beethoven’s revolutionary ‘Eroica’ Symphony.

Russian epics | 21 April 2021

Forged in the fires of war, Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony still takes the breath away. It’s certainly a very different Russia from the soaring melodies and exuberant dances of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, tonight performed by Gil Shaham.

Exiles and elegies | 24 April 2021

In his penultimate concert with the LPO, Vladimir Jurowski champions Rachmaninoff’s bittersweet, neglected Third Symphony. First though comes Richard Strauss; the LPO’s strings play the devastating wordless war requiem Metamorphosen, and Miah Persson sings the Four Last Songs: sorrow transmuted into pure, radiant beauty.

Jurowski conducts Swan Lake | 28 April 2021

Tchaikovsky’s ballet Swan Lake is a profoundly human drama of love, struggle, destiny and redemption. There could be no more fitting last word from our Principal Conductor than this full-length concert performance.
